Celebrate BTS...with a SALE and a HUGE FREEBIE!

It's just about time to head back to school for me (well, there are a few weeks left but I have been busy, busy, busy getting ready!).
Some of you are already back!

If you read my post from a while back all about my Literacy Centers, you will know how important it is to me to have all the centers in my room organized and labeled for the kids.
I am planning on changing things just a bit this year as we are getting the Full Day Kindergarten program.
I always taught full day kindergarten, just with 2 groups.
Some schools in my area taught 2 groups, half day each, whereas we taught 2 groups which would come every other day (so one group would be Monday/Wednesday/alternate Friday and the other group would be Tuesday/Thursday/alternate Friday).
This was manageable because each group was between 16-20 students.
Starting next month, when we begin Full Day Kindergarten, we will have the students every day, all day, but our numbers will be a little higher...with 30 in all!
I am a little nervous, to say the least!
We will be working with an Early Childhood Educator (ECE).  So that's a big help.
Do you remember my teeny tiny classroom?  I've posted pictures of it last year.
I don't know how we are all going to fit!
Thank goodness construction is underway and I will be getting a brand new classroom in just a few months time.

Okay, okay...on with the good stuff.

I'm joining in the big Back to School sale and everything in my TpT store is 20% off!

And my newest item, just in time for back to school....

That's not all.
As I mentioned earlier, I love center time.  I'll post again closer to when school starts for me and explain how I plan on using a Center Board this year and pictures of my room.
As for now, if you'd like a copy of my NEWLY REVISED (and oh, so cute!) 
Center Signs

(I included both large and small signs)

Adorable graphics by My Cute Graphics and DJ Inkers.

I made Literacy Center signs which were similar a while back that you may have.  If you'd like to check those out, click here and here.

Happy shopping!


  1. Wahoo! Thank you for the freebie! I moved to a new school that has center time in the afternoon and these are perfect! Traci

  2. Love the freebie!!! Bless you 30!!! I have 20 so I will be praying extra for you!!!

  3. This domain seems to get a good ammount of visitors. How do you advertise it? It gives a nice unique spin on things. I guess having something useful or substantial to say is the most important thing.
